I read this article and laughed a bit. But… Shit it’s got me seriously wondering – what if.
Ok, ok, so the title stretches the truth a little. British astronomer, Patrick Moore states that at 9:47 am the planet Pluto will pass directly behind Jupiter, in relation to the Earth. Apparently, the combined gravitational force of the two planets will exert a stronger tidal pull, temporarily counteracting the Earth’s own gravity and making people weigh less – for about 3 seconds.
News Hound states, “if you think you will be able to float around your house then you will be mistaken. BUT if you jump in the air at 9:47AM local time on January 4th 2014, it should take you about 3 seconds to land back on your feet instead of the usual 0.2 seconds.”
Leave a comment below and tell me what crazy thing you’ll be doing at 9:47 am!
